Babe project, headed by Professor Luisa Passerini, and the Oral History Master of Arts Program at Columbia University, directed by Professor Mary Marshall Clark, worked together in order to define the programme of the Summer School ‘Memory, Visuality and Mobility’ which will be held at the European University Institute from June 19 to June 30. The two-week long intensive seminar will host multiple and various interventions in the field of contemporary migrations and diasporas: the course will draw on case studies and materials from the ongoing Bodies Across Borders research project.
From a theoretical point of view, the summer school is consecrated to the study of the connection between visuality, memory and mobility. This innovative perspective is at the core of the Babe project and its research paths in the field of cultural history. During the summer school, Babe team will be involved in giving lectures on visual memory, cultural archives and mobile memories, colonial and postcolonial visual memories, oral and visual memory in/for teaching.
